For nearly a half century, David Reed Weatherford Antiques & Interiors has nurtured nostalgia with an epoch's worth of elegant and enduring 18th and 19th century antiques. Within a 4,000-square foot historic Capital Hill home overlooking Puget Sound, heirloom hunters wander into another era, akin to stumbling into a KISS reunion concert. Elevate dinner tables to shrine status with a whimsical navy blue and cream glazed Victorian style pottery jug ($175), or opt for scintillating ceramics such as the pastel hued, flower-festooned Chinese ceramic box, ideal for imbuing rooms with an otherworldly aura and sheltering displaced genies ($385). The metallurgical arts, meanwhile, feature two ambiance fortifying cloisonné vases ornately adorned with delicate floral flourishes and idyllic landscapes ($450 each).
At the locally owned and operated Affordable Mattress & Futon Gallery, shoppers can peruse bedding in a relaxed, low-pressure environment. The store’s ever-changing inventory includes mattresses by brands such as Corsicana Bedding and Ashley-Sleep, available with traditional innerspring design or features such as gel pillow tops and memory foam.

They also offer next- and same-day delivery service, during which hired staffers will remove your old mattress, take it for one last spin down the stairs, and break the hard news to the kids—who were originally told that it was going to a country farm filled with other mattresses.
